O LORD, our Lord,

how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory above the heavens.

From the lips of children and infants

you have ordained praise

because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.

When I consider your heavens,the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

what is man that you are mindful of him,

the son of man that you care for him?

(Psalm 8:1-4)


The Universe is vast,

and beyond our comprehension.

Stars we cannot number,

Size we cannot grasp.

Betelgeus – twice the size

as the distance from us to the sun,

and not the largest.

How big are Your hands,

Your mighty hands,

that You control and hold all this.

How big is our God,

the Lord God Almighty,

that He should do this,

and yet care for us.

O Lord, our Lord,

how majestic is Your name

in all of creation!
